Cook to triumph on return to former club
Wigan will be up against a familiar face when Ipswich visit the DW Stadium on Saturday, as the Tractor Boys are managed by former Latics boss Paul Cook.
Things have not gone well for Wigan since Cook’s departure last summer, as they are staring down the barrel of a second-successive relegation.
The Latics’ home form is one of the main reasons they currently find themselves in the relegation zone, as they have only won one of their last nine matches at the DW.
Indeed, only bottom of the table Rochdale have collected fewer home points in League One than Wigan this season, with the Lancashire outfit having registered just 13 from their 17 games to date.
Things have not gone too smoothly for Cook sine he took over at playoff chasing Ipswich, as he has won just once in five games, while the Tractor Boys have lost three matches on the spin away from home.
However, Ipswich do have an impressive recent record in this fixture, as they are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Wigan, with five of those games ending in victory.
We are predicting another Ipswich win on Saturday, with Cook getting the better of his former club, with our overall score prediction being for a 2-1 success for the visitors.
